Posted on May 27, 2012 by Toothpicker

 
I must be the slowest blogger out there, I have a backlog of entries that I started but never quite finished, including this which was on supposed to be published after the trade fairs last month...
I visited the biannual Bangkok International gift and household fairs a few years ago, and I decided [...]

Posted on May 15, 2012 by Toothpicker

I have a strong interest in graffiti, but I didn't expect to see such 'high quality' graffiti artwork in the city centre of Chiang Mai. I was especially amazed when I stumbled upon several walls covered with graffiti art outside a car park next to a large shopping mall. I am sure [...]

Museum of the past: Wat Ket Karam
 
Chiang Mai is known for its art and culture, it's no surprise to find cool art galleries here, but I was esp. delighted to find two rather quaint museums that are off the beaten track. Apart from the Chiang Mai city arts & cultural centre, I [...]

Si Satchanalai historical park

Posted on May 7, 2012 by Toothpicker

Si Satchanalai historical park is a World Heritage site and the former vassal town of Sukhothai, though it is not as popular as the Sukhothai historical park. Located in the northern part of the Sukhothai province, travel information and transport to this park is surprisingly limited. Hence I had to prearrange a [...]

Slow pace in old Bangkok

Posted on April 28, 2012 by Toothpicker

Siesta time!
 
Seeking 'slowness' in the fast-paced culture and lifestyle we live in today is not easy. It is also becoming more widespread as you can see this in most big cities around the world ( just watch the locals when you take public transport and you will know what I mean). Luckily [...]
